For Transfers

Need help paying for college? Apply for financial aid at Oxy by following our three-step process.

Step 1: Complete the CSS PROFILE

  • Spring 2017 Transfers by Nov. 1st: 16-17 PROFILE
  • Fall 2017 Transfers by April 1st: 17-18 PROFILE

The CSS PROFILE application allows us to review your eligibility for Oxy need-based scholarships, loans, and work study. Remember to list Occidental College, CSS code #4581.

Step 2: Complete the FAFSA

  • Spring 2017 Transfers by Nov. 1st: 16-17 PROFILE
  • Fall 2017 Transfers by March 2nd: 17-18 FAFSA

The FAFSA application allows us to review your eligibility for federal and state financial aid. Remember to list Occidental College, federal school code #001249.

Step 3: Submit Tax Returns & W-2s

  • Spring 2017 Transfers by Nov. 1st: 2015 taxes
  • Fall 2017 Transfers by April 1st: 2015 taxes

Submit copies of your and your parent(s) federal tax returns to our office. Families must submit paper copies of their complete federal tax returns (with all schedules and statements) and W-2s to the Financial Aid Office. You can submit all documents by fax, e-mail, or mail. Occidental is not part of the Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC). Failure to submit these documents on time will jeopardize your financial aid eligibility.

For CA Residents Only

All California residents are required to apply for a Cal Grant. Transfer students from California community colleges may be eligible for a Transfer Entitlement Cal Grant if they have at least a 2.4 GPA from a community college.

You must file your FAFSA and your community college must submit your GPA to the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) by March 2nd in order to be considered for this Cal Grant. Students who missed the March 2nd deadline have the opportunity to submit their FAFSA and community college GPA by September 2nd for Cal Grant consideration.
